Happy late Valentine greetings! I love all of these unique and interesting blooms, Candy!!!! Your Yowza reminds me of a gymnocalceum??? Pretty pink!

Oh goodness you are good with that camera. Very sexy shots! I CANNOT wait for the wildflower and cactus bloom here. It's going to be spectacular here this year....well that's my gardener's bet. Your flowers have me crossing my fingers.....my San Pedro Cactus may just bloom this year and if it does, you will hear me from Arizona doing a big "Whoo Hoo!!!" Last year the frost killed everything. This year has been mild and the plants are loving it.

You just kicked my spring fever into high gear!!! I just spotted a flower spike developing on one of my Aloe striata, so it won't be long now.

Your plants seem so happy!You must take really good care of them:)

Candy "Sweetstuff" said...

Thank you I really try!

Becc said...

Great shots, & info, I now know what some of my own plants will look like when they flower. How do you identify them all, most plants purchase here only have succulent written on the label,very frustrating for a beginner.

Candy "Sweetstuff" said...

Oh Becc that is a bummer. What I do is take a photo of each succulent I get along with it's label. I then put them on my computer and I have them in different files like echeveria, aeonium's, etc. It helps. You can just google the type name and look for one like it. I do that sometimes. And find different sites that show's pics of them.

Wow! I just stumbled upon your Blog. I too love succulents and can not find enough people who share my passion. I will be following your Blog. Great photos. Here on the shores of Lake Michigan only a few succulents grow naturally so I bring in many of them to keep through the Winter - like the big snow storm we had today! See you soon. Jack
